Flu shots

We got our flu shots today. Boys got the mist. I called the pedi and they couldn't get us in until Nov. So I took them to the quick care clinic. We got right in. Get this~~~ It was less expensive than the doctor charges.
And as a bonus it was in the grocery store and they had a clown there making balloons. The boys got spiderman.
They got to pick out Halloween candy for being brave.
Tre said oh Mom this is an awesome day! He had everyone smiling.
No one could tell they were just super nervous right before about getting flu mist. (I do not know why just a small puff in the nose but they were !
Anyone else having trouble getting it?

Glad it went well! Emily was nervous to get the mist, too. Although, with her, I'm never sure if it is she is really nervous or just wants some extra attention.

The girls got theirs from the pedi a couple of weeks ago. I just got our EOB from our insurance co, and they didn't charge us anything. Yay!

Of course, both girls have been sick this week. At least I know that I've done what I can to try and protect them this Winter.

I'm having a hard time finding the mist. Our Dr.'s office isn't getting it this winter. We are going tomorrow night to a quick care for flu shots/mist. I called around and they were the only ones that had the mist available and took our insurance. I haven't told the kids yet that we are going. I normally don't tell them until we are on the way there. It seems to help them not be so anxious about it.

Ryleigh has her 3 year well visit on Friday so I scheduled both kids to get the flu shot/mist then. I asked if I could get it but the adult vaccine isn't in yet.

I think I'll just go to the store and get it.

we are all going on Oct 18. DH & I are getting the shot in the morning. His work gives them free to family members over 12 yrs old. Then the DC are going to get the shot at their pediatricians flu clinic that evening. They do not know it yet so they don't stress over it.

I just made an appointment for Levi and I to get flu mist. We have done it the last 3 yrs. This is the last year that I can get it. They won't give it to people 50 years or older. I have always done it first so he can see it is no big deal. We have never had any problems with it, even when he was 3 yrs old.
DH will get his shot at the office.
